The project was to expansively extend and refurbish an existing property in Hurst Green, Brightlingsea. The scheme was challenging and Specialised Fixings called on the expertise of ARP to offer their skills and experience to overcome any design constraints whilst meeting both the design brief and the client expectations.
The brief was to provide a clean, low maintenance material that could be used for the soffits, fascia, copings and cappings, that would also match the window and door finishes, but also afford protection against the unforgiving coastal corrosion. As a standard service offering ARP provide samples of materials and coatings, which the client approved prior to ordering. Trueline is a bespoke range of pressed aluminium products which ARP manufacture to size and are ideal for fascias, soffits, copings, cappings and the bespoke one-part roof canopies for the bay windows on this project.
All were specified to the exact dimensions of the building using our in-house CAD Team to provide finished drawings for the client to approve prior to going into production. Once the drawings had been approved, the order was processed and the products formed to the drawing specifications, then coated in a marine grade polyester powder coated finish, which was colour matched to the finished windows and doors.
The Colonnade Hopper and Rainwater Pipe was also coated in the same marine grade polyester powder coated finish. Trueline aluminium bespoke products the ideal solution for all types of refurbishment like this, due to the formability of the material, it’s long life span and its non-corrosive properties.
